In this A & E Biography, you will learn of Marilyns’ illegitimate origins as Norma Jean Baker, her early teenage marriage to a neighbor’s son, and her beginnings as a magazine cover model. Her film history includes a long list of playing the role of dumb blonde, before she stakes out on her own, moves to New York and joins in with the Actors Studio to polish her more serious, dramatic side.
She was married 3 times: first, to Jim Dougherty, next to Joe DiMaggio (for only 9 months) and lastly to playwright Arthur Miller, who wrote the famous play ‘Death of a Salesman’. Her affairs with the leading men of her day, and both Attorney General Robert Kennedy and then-President John F. Kennedy are illuminated, as well. So, pop up a bowl of popcorn and enjoy 😀
